First, he had to endure a hapless US chief investment officer drawing obscure parallels between the Fed warning on the beginning of a global currency war and Hitler warning of the start of World War II (no, The Capitalist doesn’t quite get the connection either).And before the weekend, a slightly more learned comparison came courtesy of SocGen strategist Dylan Grice, who’s got a bee in his bonnet about asset price inflations. Again, the association is a Germanic one – and to find the parallel, Grice has delved into the history books to revisit the 1920s, when Reichsbank president Rudolf von Havenstein was presiding over the worst period of hyperinflation in Germany’s history, when wheelbarrowfuls of dosh would just about cover a loaf of bread.“Von Havenstein paused, thought and then added two plus two, to arrive at about … oooh … sixteen million,” Grice wrote in his latest missive. “Noting that currency bestows purchasing power and observing the troubling lack thereof across the country, he diagnosed the problem as being a lack of currency, and concluded that more printing would solve the problem. Today we look back and chuckle at von Havenstein’s naïveté, so staggeringly dense it might have bent light.”Today, unfortunately, he reckons the (lack of) thinking hasn’t changed, though the circumstances are somewhat different. “Bernanke and his co-believers are equally oblivious to their contemporary equivalent: asset market inflations. From emerging markets to precious metals to agriculture, it’s like déjà vu all over again. Nascent bubbles are emerging. But to what Havensteinian conclusion does the warped logic of our central bankers lead them? Why, the world needs more liquidity, of course…”STAR QUALITYKnowing the importance of image in the upper echelons of the banking world, The Capitalist imagines that JP Morgan chief executive Jamie Dimon and former Merrill Lynch boss John Thain are relatively chuffed with the actors chosen to play them in the upcoming movie of Andrew Ross Sorkin’s best-selling Too Big to Fail.Dimon will be played by Bill Pullman, best known for playing a go-getting US President in Independence Day. And Thain hasn’t lost out in the macho stakes, either – he’ll be portrayed by Matthew Modine, star of war flick Full Metal Jacket. Other names already confirmed for the film include William Hurt as US Treasury secretary Henry Paulson, Paul Giamatti as Ben Bernanke, and Tony Shalhoub as Morgan Stanley’s John Mack. whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

High Court gives green light to Irish bank revamp

first_img Tags: NULL whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Ireland’s High Court upheld Ireland’s state-run “bad bank” structure, throwing out a legal challenge that had threatened to complicate the country’s recovery from financial crisis.Paddy McKillen, who co-owns Dublin’s Clarence Hotel with rock group U2 band members Bono and The Edge, had brought the first case against Ireland’s National Asset Management Agency to try and stop it acquiring around 2.1bn euros (£1.8bn) in loans secured on his assets.Lawyers for the Belfast man had argued that McKillen’s loans are being repaid and have no place in NAMA, which was established to take over Irish banks’ risky commercial property portfolios and draw a line under years of reckless lending that have brought the sector and the economy to its knees.NAMA needs performing loans to generate income, and a win for McKillen could have encouraged other developers to launch similar actions, cutting its cash flow and forcing a heavily indebted government to plug the gap.It could also have hampered a recovery in the property market with transactions put on hold while legal cases were pursued.“In summary, the court has concluded that the (NAMA) Act is a proportionate response to the very grave financial situation in which the state finds itself and which has particular relevance to financial institutions within the state,” said the judgement, read by the president of the Irish High Court, justice Nicholas Kearns.Lawyers for NAMA had argued that the central bank, the financial regulator and the European Commission all deemed McKillen’s loans a sufficient systemic risk to merit their inclusion in NAMA.They also argued that the loan-to-value ratio on some of his loans had been breached and he did not deserve special treatment.McKillen, the publicity-shy developer who hired Nobel prize-winning economist Joseph Stiglitz as an expert witness in the case, owns shopping centres, offices and five-star hotels in the UK, Ireland, France and the United States.His assets include London luxury hotels Claridges, the Connaught and the Berkeley.NAMA is acquiring loans with a nominal value of 73bn euros and the agency said in July it expected about a quarter of them would be income-producing.The agency is eying a profit of one billion euros over a 10-year lifespan but has warned it could also make an 800 million euro loss in a more “stressed” scenario.The government has said it would recoup any losses it makes on NAMA via a special levy on the banks.In September, NAMA Chief Executive Brendan McDonagh said the agency was in advanced talks to sell about 500m euros of assets with a view to repaying 20bn euros of loans by 2013.It has acquired nearly 40 per cent of the loans it has targeted and expects to conclude the bulk of the transfers by the end of the year.The hefty discounts, in some cases nearly three quarters of the original loan value, that NAMA is demanding on the assets it has acquired has upped Ireland’s overall bill for cleaning up its banks to potentially 50bn euros and triggered fears Dublin will need external aid to help manage its finances.

Deposits rose to a record $1trn by the end of 2010, it said.Last year’s results included a one-time Troubled Asset Relief Program-related charge of $4bn.“Last year was a necessary repair and rebuilding year,” said President and Chief Executive Officer Brian Moynihan. “Our results reflect the progress we are making at putting legacy – primarily mortgage-related – issues behind us.” More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.com whatsappcenter_img Share Tags: NULL BofA posts $1.2bn loss but Merrill performs whatsapplast_img read more

Our brief was to create a home which can readily adapt without alteration to encompass a fam- ily gathering, or simultaneously retreat to become singular and introverted. Volumes and scale overlap so there are rooms within rooms, micro and macro spaces working simultaneously under an embodied roof.Save this picture!© Edmund SumnerThe challenge of turning the chapel into a contemporary home lay in the very restrictive plan- ning process and the need to carefully negotiate privacy and overlook of the neighbouring properties. Given the planning restrictions for the conservation area, the programme for a family house needed to surgically dovetail into the existing shell, whilst allowing creative freedom within an internal transfiguration. This primarily involved the construction of a lower ground level for the sleeping quarters, a large ground floor living space with vaulted ceiling, and a mezzanine level inserted as a space for privacy and retreat within the volume of the living space.Save this picture!© Edmund SumnerThough it was never actually consecrated as a chapel, the unhallowed status became the pro- tagonist for architectural intervention. The vocabulary of structural components; axis, narthex, fan vault, nave, and crossing were recast with similar dwelling archetypes: medieval hall hous- es, Victorian attic spaces, and long galleries to bring about a unique dwelling type. Similarly, interior elements such as pulpit, confession, altar, pipe organ, and matroneum were interwoven with everyday forms of domestic furniture and situated around the activities of eating, sleeping, cooking, relaxing, and study. Vertically, the spaces divide between day and night, heaven and earth.Save this picture!© Edmund SumnerThroughout the ambulatory movement of Chapel, the in-between spaces create opportunities in which to foster and play out the every-day of domestic life without constraint nor pre-condi- tion. Entrance steps create a place to momentarily rest in the sun whilst the internal staircase is wide enough to contemplate a book. A window slot frames nature’s cherry blossom, the ingle- nook invites intimate conversation, and a private study is placed within the cloud of the roof to invoke inward concentration.Save this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanMaterials are ascetic and contradictory in their quality so as to enrich and resonate with the emotional atmosphere. The external brickwork is constructed of bricks reclaimed from the existing chapel and the roof slate is reclaimed from locally demolished buildings.

Ella May: Anti-racist strike martyr

first_imgElla May, a textile union leader killed during a 1929 strike in North Carolina, was born in 1900 in Tennessee. Her family had been small farmers, but before she reached adulthood her father was a wage worker in the logging industry that had invaded rural Appalachia. Logging was dangerous work, killing May’s father and leaving her husband, John Wiggins, disabled. Her family then moved to the Piedmont region of North Carolina where she found work in the burgeoning textile industry.Ella MayBy 1929 John Wiggins had left the family. While some labor historians have misidentified her as Ella May (or Mae) Wiggins, Ella May dropped her married surname after Wiggins’ exit. Her own family’s suffering, and the suffering she saw all around her, motivated this strong-willed woman to fight the bosses.Textile companies were leaving New England for the South, which lured business with the promise of cheaper wages, exploitable child labor and a union-free environment. Women in the northern mills had a history of striking for better wages and working conditions, going back to the early 1800s. Life was hard, but since the 1912 “Bread and Roses” strike in Lawrence, Mass., unions had made gains in the North.Southern mill hands — derisively referred to as “lintheads” — were paid starvation wages while typically working 11-hour days or nights. Hard work offered no escape from poverty; pellagra, a disease caused by malnutrition, took the lives of many children. Ella May herself lost four of her nine children, one at 17 months and three in their first months of life.Gaston County, N.C., was home to many textile mills, including the world’s largest: the Loray Mill in Gastonia. Ella May lived and worked in nearby Bessemer City at American Mill No. 2. These and other mills employed thousands — a majority women. Children often toiled alongside their parents out of economic necessity.The mills were often owned by Northerners, who paid substantially lower wages in the South. Mill owners perceived Southern workers to be individualistic and disinclined to unionism. When Northern organizers arrived in North Carolina in 1929, they were portrayed as outsiders by the bosses, the media and the clergy. In Gaston County, the Communist Party leadership of the National Textile Union was attacked for being atheistic, “un-American” and in favor of racial equality. The workers, however, had been pushed to their limits. Mass anger was growing over the “stretch-out,” where workloads were being increased, even doubled, with no pay increase. In fact, wages were falling, as competition was intensifying, profit margins narrowed and companies were driven to cut labor costs to the bare minimum. The demand for woven cotton had also fallen with the introduction of rayon fabric and the loss of overseas business to Asian manufacturers.Strike!On March 31, 1929, at a mass meeting outside the Loray Mill, workers were asked by NTU leaders if they wanted to strike. Nearly every hand went up. The strike, which began the next day, spread to other mills, including May’s in Bessemer City.The mills there were atypical in one respect: They hired Black workers. Normally Black people could not even get a job in the cotton mills. White workers were led to view Black workers as a threat to their jobs. Anti-union leaflets literally posed the question: “Would you belong to a union that opposes White Supremacy?”May ignored the racist and anti-Communist propaganda and recruited Black workers to the NTU. They were not only her co-workers but also her friends and neighbors.Strikers at Loray Mills in 1929May emerged as a leader on the picket lines. She brought her strong voice, singing familiar and original songs. Her best known composition, “Mill Mother’s Lament,” opens with the verse: “We leave our homes in the morning/We kiss our children goodbye/While we slave for the bosses/Our children scream and cry.” Walking the picket lines with their children, women were the backbone of the strike. Along with May, Daisy McDonald and 11-year-old Odell Corley were standout local fighters who also composed union songs. Vera Buch and Sophie Miller were among the national NTU organizers who took on the difficult challenge of organizing these Southern textile workers.Strikes meet repressionManville-Jenckes, the Rhode Island company that owned the Loray Mill, was determined to break the strike — as was the local political establishment. After some 200 striker families were evicted from company housing, the union erected a tent encampment. Anti-union vigilantes, with the support of local police, destroyed the camp as well as the union headquarters on April 18. A second camp was erected, protected by armed union guards.On June 7, police attempted to enter the encampment, provoking a shootout that left five policemen wounded. When Police Chief Orville Aderholt died the following day — though it could not be determined who shot the chief — his death was used to justify violence and repression against the strike. Vigilantes — organized as the Committee of 100, supposedly representing “loyal employees” but mainly consisting of supervisors — kidnapped and flogged union activist Ben Wells. Strikers, including May and other women leaders, were being routinely jailed. Three women were among 15 union leaders arrested and charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in the death of Aderholt. There was no evidence that any of them had fired the fatal shot or that the killing was premeditated.The defense appeared close to winning a “not guilty” verdict when the judge declared a mistrial on Sept. 9. Supposedly a juror “went insane” after seeing the prosecution’s exhibit, a plaster mannequin clothed in Aderholt’s blood-stained uniform.Anti-union forces were furious that no “guilty” verdict had been reached. Mobs comprising mill management and local businessmen destroyed union offices in Gastonia and Bessemer City and assaulted unionists in Charlotte.A second trial was scheduled for Sept. 30. The state dropped the charges against eight of the original defendants, including the three women. When charges against the other seven were reduced to second-degree murder, a conviction appeared likely.Women confront National Guard soldier during the strikeVigilante murder of Ella May Over 20 Bessemer City strikers, including pregnant Ella May, piled into the back of a pickup truck on Sept. 14 and headed to Gastonia to support the framed-up union leaders. Their vehicle was forced to turn around by 10 to 15 carloads of vigilantes, who followed them as they retreated. The union truck had to brake suddenly when a car sped up and stopped in front of it. The occupants of that car, along with others, surrounded the strikers. A member of this armed group shot Ella May in the chest. She died instantly in the arms of her companion, Charlie Shope. Hundreds of mill workers attended May’s funeral and burial, while others left their work stations briefly to pay respects as the casket passed by. Neither the family nor the NTU had funds for a headstone. Her brother Wesley put a large rock in the ground to mark the plot. Even in death she garnered the ire of the Gastonia Gazette, which claimed her murder “shades into insignificance when compared with the lawlessness of the communists at Loray.” Vera Buch later opined that, more than anything, her friend was singled out because she “understood immediately without argument the value of our union principle of racial equality.” (Kristina Horton, “Martyr of Loray Mill: Ella May and the 1929 Textile Workers’ Strike in Gastonia, North Carolina”)Violence against strikers continued after the funeral with another kidnapping and flogging and more attacks on union offices. After enduring almost six months of anti-union terror, and with many strikers returning to work, the NTU officially called off the strike on Sept. 27. Remembering resistanceLegal and extra-legal terror against workers was not limited to NTU strikes in Gastonia County. Textile strikes led by the moderate and segregationist United Textile Workers, affiliated with the American Federation of Labor, were also brutally suppressed. Six strikers were killed in Marion, N.C., in 1929, immortalized by folk singer Woody Guthrie in “The Marion Massacre.”Eventually seven men were charged with conspiracy to murder Ella May. Dozens of eyewitnesses, including everyone who was in the pickup truck, testified before investigators. Many saw Horace Wheelus, a “loyal” Loray worker, fire the fatal shot. Nevertheless, on Oct. 23 a Gaston County grand jury concluded that there was not enough evidence to charge anyone with May’s murder.By contrast, the seven charged with the murder of Chief Aderholt received sentences ranging from seven to 20 years. They skipped bail and fled to the Soviet Union.The drama of the Gastonia strike has been the subject of six novels. Decades later, folk singers Malvina Reynolds and Gary Green recorded songs written about Ella May. In 1977 local unionists finally erected a headstone at her gravesite. Currently a memorial committee is raising funds for a life-size sculpture to be placed there.Ella May — a woman warrior and a class-conscious anti-racist who gave her life for the betterment of her class — is not forgotten.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Patterson’s next-man-up philosophy being tested down the stretch

Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.There’s injury troubles, and then there’s what TCU football has gone through this season.“We’ve lost a lot of soldiers this year, but next guy up,” safety Markell Simmons said. “Coach P preaches that all the time.”TCU head coach Gary Patterson said Tuesday that about 40 players have missed at least four games throughout the season with injuries.From starting quarterback Shawn Robinson to the Horned Frogs’ top defensive tackle Ross Blacklock, who suffered his injury in fall camp, the team has suffered about 20 season-ending injuries on both sides of the ball.As a result, TCU’s scout team is struggling to field 11 players in practice, leading to a kicker needing to play the role of scout team defensive end.“Just to be a body,” head coach Gary Patterson said. “I’ve never experienced anything like this.”However, TCU’s goal to play in a bowl game is unchanged. The team’s margin for error is now razor-thin, needing to win two of their last three to get to a bowl-eligible 6 wins.This week’s contest provides a tall task, with the Horned Frogs having to travel to No. 9 West Virginia as double-digit underdogs before they face Baylor in Waco and then wrap up the regular season with a home game against a feisty Oklahoma State. The stretch has Patterson weighing the pros and cons of an early finish to the 2018 season.“You get a lot of rest if you don’t make it to a bowl game, they’ll get about a month and a half, which can be a good thing because it gives you a lot more time to be able to go out and recruit,” said Patterson. “We want to go to a bowl game, but the bottom line to it is if we don’t then I’ll be on the road every day recruiting, which I wouldn’t be if we were getting ready for a bowl game. For every weakness, there’s a strength.”Patterson’s closest reference point for this season is TCU’s first season in the Big 12 when it had to play 17 true freshmen. Patterson said he’s down seven safeties, including two long-time starters in Innis Gaines and Niko Small. Garret Wallow, the team’s leading tackler, isn’t being used as a full-time linebacker anymore since he has to step into his previous position at strong safety with the high injury totals.The Horned Frogs have not attempted to pin the blame on injuries as the cause of a losing record. Patterson’s secondary has managed to still hold the Big 12’s best pass defense, allowing 190.7 yards per game.TCU’s defense will be faced with the tough task of maintaining West Virginia’s high-flying offense as they boast one of the top passing attacks in the Big 12 with quarterback Will Grier at the controls.“I don’t know if we’ve played anybody to this point that throws like they do,” Patterson said. “They have a lot of weapons.”David Sills V, West Virginia’s top receiver, has recorded 626 receiving yards and a Big 12-best 11 touchdown catches this season. Sills V also led the nation in touchdown receptions a season ago with 18. Gary Jennings Jr., Grier’s No. 2 receiver is right behind Sills V for the conference lead with nine touchdown catches.“Those guys are big, tall, so you’ve just got to play smart when the ball is in the air,” Simmons said. “As they’re coming down, you try to knock the ball out of their hands and just be smart.”Kickoff Saturday in Morgantown between TCU and West Virginia is set for 11 a.m. Garrett is a Journalism and Sports Broadcasting double major.

Concerns over bill that limits access to auditing agency’s reports

first_img Salvadorean authorities must not obstruct coronavirus coverage to go further Covid-19 emergency laws spell disaster for press freedom Follow the news on El Salvador Reporters Without Borders has expressed concern over a bill that aims to limit access to reports issued by the Court of Accounts, the country’s auditing agency. “Transparency in public life is essential to any democracy. As such, it is imperative that journalists be given access to all information concerning government expenditures,” stated Reporters Without Borders Secretary-General Robert Ménard. Ménard urged National Assembly Speaker Ciro Cruz Zepeda to amend the bill in order to make all Court of Accounts reports available to the public.On 16 October 2002, President Francisco Flores sent the bill back to the National Assembly after amending it slightly. It had earlier been submitted to him for ratification. Article 46 of the bill initially provided for Court of Accounts reports to remain classified as long as the liability of implicated civil servants was not clearly establishment.In the version of the bill that the president returned to members of theNational Assembly, the Court of Accounts is given the authority to determine whether or not to release audited reports that highlight serious irregularities. Moreover, audited reports would be passed on to the president or members of the National Assembly before being sent to the press. The National Assembly will now either ratify the president’s version of the bill or once again introduce a newly-amended version.
